Parkman & parker


Parker Trial Law, LLC was founded by lead trial attorney Adam E. Parker. Our firm represents individuals and businesses in civil and criminal litigation. Adam began expanding the firm and sought to bring on other attorneys with a dedication for representing clients in jury trials. Adam left a previous firm bringing only his paralegal but was soon joined by others as he sought to grow. He was soon joined by his friend, nationally recognized trial attorney Jim Parkman. In a way, our firm’s history dates back to 1979 when Jim Parkman first entered into the private practice of law. Our attorneys have handled hundreds of cases ranging from simple matters to highly complex litigation. Our willingness to go to trial, whether a criminal or civil matter, or whether the case is in state or federal court, has brought the firm great success.

We primarily focus on serving clients throughout Alabama and Georgia. However, our attorneys are nationally renowned. Our attorneys have served as lead counsel in cases in more than twenty states throughout the country. Jim has served as lead counsel in various white-collar matters and high-profile trials which have lasted as long as six months in length. Some of Jim’s notable high-profile clients include former HealthSouth CEO Richard M. Scrushy, Swedish criminal Bo Steffan Eriksson, former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, and Alabama State Senator Harri Anne Smith. Adam has served as lead counsel in several serious injury and wrongful death matters to include an electrocution death in New Mexico, eighteen wheeler wrecks in Alabama and Mississippi, and death cases due to defective machinery in Georgia.

All of our attorneys share a common interest in trying cases (particularly jury trials), discussion of trial strategy, and desire to zealously represent their clients led to the formation of this firm. At our firm, we also focus on trial advocacy and building the next generation of trial lawyers. All associate attorneys at our firm are required to accept criminal appointments as we feel there is nothing more noble than defending the impoverished people of our area. Trials involve risk and a favorable settlement offer should always be considered. An ideal scenario would be the dismissal of a criminal client’s pending charges or an insurance company offering policy limits to resolve a matter against their insured to compensate our client for their injuries. However, adequate offers are rare and that is why trials are necessary. At our firm, we believe that results matter, experience matters, and you matter.
